80s TV sings “Let it Go”
I have no words:
HT: Mike Leake
R.C. Sproul Jr:
Like mega-cities, monstrous churches not only carry the temptation of invisibility, but such is one of their selling points. I’ve read polls where one key reason why people like their local mega-church is, “You can show up, sit down, and when it’s over go home. And no one bothers you.” Ouch. Any church receiving such an endorsement ought to blush.
Matt Heerema explains: “There is one simple rule to help you apply all Old Testament stories: let them help you fix your eyes on Jesus.”
Vincent van Gogh aspired to become a Calvinist pastor, like his dad.
He pursued ministry in the Dutch Reformed Church until he hit a roadblock by failing his academic training, and then experienced what personal failure often breeds: disillusionment. He became disenchanted with pastoral ministry and then left the church for good in 1880 at the age of 27. From that point on van Gogh redirected all his ambitions to art.
